Dreams of Freedom is a “unique collection of powerful words from champions of freedom today and throughout history.” Inspiring quotes from luminaries such as, Anne Frank, Nelson Mandela, Harriet Tubman, and Elsa Wiezell, each of which has been interpreted beautifully by remarkable illustrators. Chris Riddell. Mordicai Gerstein. Jackie Morris. The list goes on.

I’m overwhelmed by the strength of this publication. Humbled by those who have struggled, fought, died in defence of our basic human right to be free, and those who still do. This book is capable of igniting conversation, awareness, and gratitude. Its words are impressed upon my heart.

Freedom for Fear: “The only real prison is fear, and the only real freedom is freedom from fear…You should never let your fears prevent you from doing what you know is right.” Aung San Suu Kyi.

Freedom through Peace: “Human beings have the right to pursue happiness and live in peace and freedom.” The 14th Dalai Lama, Tenzin Gyatso.

This is a must read for everyone.
